Recognition of this research issue and such a diverse scope of studies stem from the fact that communication is an indispensable aspect to societal existence and well-being, yet its complexity and various manifestations inhibit and slow down this research.

One direction of research lies in constructing communication models, which cover and explain various types of communication (mediated by technologies or not, targeted at single individuals or large audiences, one-way or reciprocal, etc.). Among recognized and popular models are those developed by Lasswell, Lazarsfeld, Shannon, Wiener, Osgood, to name just a few.

It is a well-known fact that such communication models were first designed to algorithmicize and interpret technology-mediated communication (Shannon/Weaver, 1963). Later they were reconsidered to embrace man-to-man communication and included the addresser (sender), the addressee (receiver) and the message as well as various inhibitions (noises) that curtail and distort the message.
